- The Catastrophic Pandemic Has Decimated Societies & Communities. Crime is on the Rise. Card-Based Access Control Systems to Reach $3.1 Billion
- The global market for Card-Based Access Control Systems is projected to reach US$3.1billion by the year 2027, trailing a post COVID-19 CAGR of 6% over the analysis period 2020 through 2027. The social and financial insecurities and loss wreaked by the pandemic is pushing up the risk of crime. Infiltration into critical infrastructure remains a major threat area. Unauthorized access to protected and restricted spaces in buildings is continuing to increase. Financial chaos wreaked by COVID-19 is resulting in increased theft & vandalism. Cash larceny and burglary is on the rise along with terrorist incidents which continued to surface even in amid the pandemic. In addition to increased crime, the pandemic is also positively impacting the market in other ways. The outbreak is causing a global reaction, bringing about significant changes to businesses. Contactless cards that facilitate hygiene and secure process of transactions are growing in demand, specifically during the current crisis. The COVID-19 pandemic is set to change access control priorities and prompt enterprises to make necessary amendments in their existing strategies. Enterprise-level access control solutions have been witnessing continuous evolution and changes over the last several years, with various players shifting focus towards more powerful and secure systems, open platforms, big data and mobile credentials. Demand for contactless cards for access control systems is expected to continue with several organizations and governments opting for contactless technologies in the current scenario. The reopening of businesses is driving companies to make adjustments such as disabling active badges, implementing temperature checks or self-assessments, and ensuring health validation before granting access. Enterprises are integrating systems to check temperature access control solutions for automating processes related to denying or granting access.
- Majority of enterprises are rethinking approaches to leverage existing access control systems as an effective line of defense with new medical technologies such as temperature screening. COVID-19 is driving companies to consider features such as contact tracking and health screening. However, the integration of temperature sensing with access control requires enterprises to pay particular attention to cyber security as these devices are highly likely to be hacked for gaining data. The pandemic and strong focus on no-touch access control options is anticipated to help biometrics in garnering notable attention. Technologies such as iris scans, facial recognition and wave readers along with other non-contact options are poised to gain on the expense of fingerprint readers. In addition, enterprises are likely to migrate away from conventional access control identification methods towards facial recognition. Various organizations are anticipated to also consider the implementation of open systems and mobile credentials for ensuring frictionless access without the need for touching. While increasing focus on data is expected to drive enterprises to adopt wireless readers, increasing connectivity and remote workplaces are likely to favor the cloud technology. The increasing focus on hosted and managed cloud services is anticipated to require integrators gain more insights into cloud along with hybrid options due to continuous shift away from conventional on-premise access control.
- Another key trend in the global access control market is the growing prominence of integrated systems. Access control systems, even the smaller ones, supporting lesser number of doors, are being integrated with intercom or video. Prominence of standalone systems, which are no longer suitable for the modern security model, is gradually fading against growing popularity of integrated systems in which video, intrusion, and access control are beginning to well complement each other and providing very high protection levels. However, increasing levels of integration is leading to more pressure on security integrators to expand their portfolio of offerings because of the demand for multifarious products from clients. Also, integration comes at a cost. Since many components in the system are bespoke, integrating proves to be expensive. The number of access products supported by an integrator currently is five. A decade ago, an average integrator supported just one product or at the best, two products. Security integrators are also currently required to carry different product lines for cloud services for SMBs, and for larger enterprises. Going forward, the market for access control systems will be affected by several emerging technologies including locksets integrated with wireless technologies, mobile credentials, biometric credentials, etc. Wireless systems at doors, connecting back to cloud-based systems, will be most sought after by larger clients. These systems will allow them to manage access control expenses.
